Apple is looking to include AI smarts in its next generation M4 chips, according to Bloomberg’s Marc Gurman.

It's only taken Biostar a little over two years to launch an Intel Arc A750 graphics card, though depending on your perspective, it's a fashionably late entry into A750 territory—at this point in the game, Arc is far more mature than at launch, with Intel's driver team putting in a lot of work shoring up performance...

Most high-end PC components assume you want to show off—cases have windows, everything is crawling with RGB, and there are even connectors that make it easier to hide your cables. What if there aren't any cables, though? MSI has released a new PC case fan system that does away with cables. Well, almost—there are... Read more...
As a user of the Apple Vision Pro myself, I can fully attest that this is a substantially weighty device. After using it for an hour, I can expect to have some red marks adorned on my face without missing a beat. Other users are apparently experiencing similar effects, and some even worse, such as black eyes. If... Read more...
A rather unusual looking motherboard is making the rounds after it was posted to X, formerly Twitter, which is turning heads because of its SO-DIMM memory slots. That's because it's a full-size ATX motherboard that should be flexing regular DIMM slots instead of their truncated SO-DIMM cousin, which is typically... Read more...
Just when Apple figured its latest firmware update solved the ongoing ghost touch issue for Apple Watch Series 9 and Ultra 2 owners, the problem has not only persisted, but has apparently spread to older watches as well, like the three-year old Series 7.

We were pleasantly surprised when AMD revealed that its current-generation Phoenix and Hawk Point processors would use its latest-generation RDNA 3 graphics architecture for their integrated graphics processors (IGPs.) That's because, historically, APUs have lagged behind discrete GPUs in terms of architecture. We may hit a sticking point Read more...
End-of-life hardware can be quite the problem at times, even crashing back into Earth’s atmosphere at supersonic speeds for that matter. Of course, we wouldn’t expect such travesties happening with the hardware you keep in your basement, or that NAS you tucked away your closet. However, older tech gear can have... Read more...
